Updated migration timeline for faculty and staff available
As we approach the end of the migration of WiscMail and WiscMail Plus accounts to Office 365, final account numbers enable us to project the final timeline for Office 365 mandatory migrations. See the Migration Timeline for account migration details.
Final migrations of faculty and staff began September 15
About 85% of the campus has moved to Office 365. Faculty and staff who have not taken the opportunity to self-migrate to Office 365, and who are not moving with a department, began automatically migrating to Office 365 on September 15. As with students, faculty and staff receive an email notification two weeks prior to the start of their migration window, informing them of the two-week window during which their mandatory migration will occur. This provides them with a final opportunity to self-migrate, if desired. These migrations will be completed by October 13. If you need assistance, please contact the Help Desk.
Mandatory migration for WiscMail and WiscMail Plus accounts to Office 365 will be completed by mid-December
All remaining WiscMail (@wisc.edu) accounts affiliated with department and department domains will be migrated to Office 365 between October 13 and November 24, 2015. Remaining WiscMail Plus accounts will be migrated between November 24 and December 22.
Migration Partner information session for final migrations on September 30
An informational session will be held for Office 365 Migration Partners to review the final mandatory migrations process and timeline. Join us on September 30 from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m., 3609 Engineering Hall.
New features have arrived for Outlook on the web
Microsoft recently rolled out exciting updates to the web version of Outlook in Office 365. These include an improved user interface (UI) and new features that will help you be more efficient, stay on top of your inbox, and better manage your calendar. Microsoft has also updated the naming convention of the browser-based Outlook from Outlook Web App (or OWA for short) to “Outlook on the web.”
Please note, these changes will be implemented in stages and will not be accessible to everyone at the same time. We do not have any control as to when these changes will be pushed to our environment.
